With its compact profile, the GMR position sensor chip is encased in a small, rugged plastic shell. The entire sensor can fit in a common soda straw less than 1.25 inches long. There is a small LED window in the shell to allow visible indication of the switching signal. Because the Sick, Inc. GMR sensor is shaped to allow for quick installation in a specially designed T-slot aluminum track, installation is easy, secure and user friendly. For customers desiring electrical output of piston position, most Airpel models are offered with an optional switch-activating magnet on the piston, as well as one or more of the aluminum tracks which measure 9.51mm wide and 6.83mm high, and come permanently bonded along the entire length of the cylinder in the location desired when ordering sensor-ready Airpels.
Airpot offers the Sick, Inc GMR position sensors separately and we stock popular models with PNP or NPN output, along with matching accessory extension cables available in 2 and 5 meter lengths.
